Capturing effortlessly the exotic wonders of the Silk Road, the much loved Liverpool, tapas-style eatery is a definite must-try for foodie lovers of Liverpool and it seems many would agree with us, with the restaurant’s success now allowing them to open up their fourth site in two years. From flat breads and dips to antipastos and warming curry dishes, the restaurant serves something for everyone, with a wide range of inventive menu options. Our last visit to Silk Rd involved a journey through the Silk Rd in the form of exotic and unbelievably flavoursome dishes as well as a tasting session of their spectacular gin offerings. Not only was the food and drink unbeatable, the hospitality was next to none, making Silk Rd an all round 5 star dining experience. With all of this in mind, we were delighted to hear of their expansion. Here’s what you can expect in 2019:
Silk Rd is gearing up for its busiest year yet in 2019 with expansion plans that will see the restaurant launch on Liverpool’s Hope Street, opening its fourth venue in just two years.
The new venue addition comes after a prolific year for owners Chris Williams and Javier Mellado who already have a trio of restaurants in Heswall, Liverpool City Centre’s Beetham Plaza and Bramhall.
Following the success of Silk Rd’s first site launch in July 2017, the business duo have welcomed approximately 70,000 guests to their restaurants and employed over 100 people across the North West.
Chris said: “We’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy a successful year with Silk Rd that has afforded us the option to expand across the North West with locations in Wirral, Liverpool and Bramhall and our ambitious plans don’t stop here. Although 2018 has been exceptionally busy for us and has seen us open a further two sites and expand into a whole new city, next year is about continuing our growth and we’re excited at the prospect of opening yet another location for our diners to enjoy.
“We can’t wait to welcome in the new year with a fourth restaurant under the Silk Rd brand. Liverpool has a thriving food and drink scene and since we launched in 2017, we always planned on having a dominant presence here and it’s incredibly rewarding to see our goals come to life. Having already established ourselves in the heart of the Business District, we have set our sights on the more bohemian Hope Street, which has an upmarket yet contemporary vibe that we feel suits our concept perfectly.”
Taking inspiration from the Silk Road trail, which spans three continents from the Pacific to the Mediterranean, the restaurant brand serves up authentic cuisine in the form of small plates and tapas.
Javier added: “As well as constantly planning for growth, we’re also exploring new ways in which we can improve our service and will be looking to add new, exciting additions to our menu in the coming months. Although we have built a loyal customer following in the region, we are always eager to welcome new faces and by opening in Hope Street we hope to see new customers as well as returning customers who want to enjoy a different take on our restaurant. Keep your eyes peeled and watch this space!”
